Italian born goalkeeper Giuseppe (named "Joseph" in France) Mattioni began his footballing career in 1946, in the French Second Division, with CA Paris. In November 1948, Stade Rennais lost their first-choice goalkeeper, Guy Rouxel, through injury, and Mattioni was hastily recruited as cover. He would be Rennes' goalkeeper for the rest of the 1948/1949 campaign, but would be replaced by the returning Rouxel the following season. He made a total of 25 appearances for Stade Rennais, conceding 49 goals in that time, In 1950, he left Rennes to join Nantes in the Second Division. Described as a theatrical and an oddball goalkeeper, he would become first-choice keeper with the Canaries at the beginning of the 1950/1951 season (finishing in 10th place), but he would gradually lose that status owing to numerous errors commited in some games. His stay at Nantes would end up being just the single season, moving on to finish his career with Toulon, where he played between 1951 and 1953.
